I See Your Wonders and Stand Amazed

272168-cm-life-glasshouse-650-plugRecently we visited a small town in the hinterlands which sits at the highest altitude I think I have ever been at. It was a rainy day, which ordinarily would have ruined the trip, but amazingly, I found myself above and in cloud level and it became a day of delighted astonishment. Outside of a plane, this has never happened to me.

We sat at the edge of the mountain and watched the clouds move over the coast and up towards us, then we were in them and they were around us. It was patchy cloud. Looking beside where we sat, we could see a small patch of cloud that actually looked like a cloud, not mist or fog. Later, we had to walk through it to leave, then when we retrieved our car from the carpark under the restaurant, there was another cloud behind the car.

This was a concrete car park, open on one side. There was a cloud in it. Mind blown! A lady in the gift shop was telling us that at that altitude, if she doesn’t close the doors to her house, the clouds just waft in.

I look at Psalm 19 and always think of the night sky, but this trip had me looking at that Scripture through new eyes.

“The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
The skies display his craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known.
They speak without a sound or word;
their voice is never heard.
Yet their message has gone throughout the earth,
and their words to all the world.”

Whether it’s night or day, the wonders of the Lord prove His Presence and perfect Workmanship still.
